How We Support You

Job Opportunity Hub:

Our website serves as a central hub where employers can post job openings, including apprenticeships, ensuring visibility within the local community. Job seekers can easily access these opportunities and apply directly, or access support from our internal team, streamlining the process for both parties.

Personalised support to you:

We can help you to identify barriers to your current recruitment issues, support you with creating apprenticeships and creating specific campaigns and employment events.

Personalised candidate screening:

Leicester Employment Hub employs rigorous vetting and screening processes to identify potential candidates who match the ethos and requirements of partnering employers.
